Still didn't work! I copied the format just like the video.

Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it.

I finally figured it out: document.write("<h1>Welcome to my site</h1>"). I had to put the quotation marks outside the h1 tags. I need a javascript syntax cheatsheet.

Remember, whenever you use a method, you usually want to add (), then put your information in between. Try looking at your document.write method.

Thank you.

I was asking myself this same question too. After using Treehouse for awhile now I realized it is a great learning opportunity. They don't give you the answer so you have to learn how to use the resources available to you to find the answer. In a real world scenario, all you have is the resources you understand how to use to solve your problem.

Yes, I realize the intent on not giving the answer; however when a student is simply "CLUELESS", what is their recourse for moving forward? Some students like myself have a very bad retention span and rely on better hints that will prompt them to the right answer.
